Local Google


The UK is finally beginning to catch up with our Atlantic cousins in terms of what the all powerful Google is offering us. Having watch with jealousy the US excitement over their innovations, Google have announced the UK version of Google Maps. There’s also Google Local and SMS services. The maps interest me for no other reason than the UK overview shows my home town of Gateshead rather than its neighbour Newcastle. No cool satellite imagery (yet) though :-(
